Age of Rust
Age of Rust is a dark sci-fi adventure game that lets users earn crypto and crypto items while exploring a unique universe in locations like abandoned space stations, mysterious caverns and ruins on far away worlds, and by solving complex puzzles on their way. The in-game treasure hunt is worth 20 bitcoins. These are rewarded in different cryptocurrencies including Rustbits, Enjin, Ethereum, and Bitcoin. Players must howerver, possess certain tokens or crypto to be eligible to unlock higher reward tiers which also feature more difficult puzzles. The prizes can be won in tiers with Tier 1 rewards including Rustbits or Age of Rust blockchain game items; Tier 2 rewards include Rustbits, Ethereum or Enjin coins; while Tier 3 Treasure Hunt feature 4 BTC and 20 BTC Treasures. The puzzles are skill-based and often difficult to solve, though players will be helped along with in-game hints.
The Tier 1 puzzles can take up to 1-2 days to solve, while the Second Tier puzzles average 2-3 weeks and the Tier 3 puzzles average several months to crack. However, players can unlock rewards by solving the puzzles earlier than expected. The time gauges are just estimates based on difficulty of these puzzles. Players do not need to understand anything about cryptography or crypto to be able to solve the puzzles and win. Furthermore, 100 Rustbits or more are required to be able to play the final release but players can get early access by holding certain tokens in their Enjin wallet. The latter also allows users to be involved in early releases and test the game before launch.
First of all, the game has an ERC-1155 (check more details on additional to main ERC protocols) in-game cryptocurrency called Rustbit that's based on the Ethereum network, and can be used to buy, sell and trade in-game items. These tradeable items are stored on a user's crypto wallet which is independent from the game. In-game items sell for between 1000-10,000 Rustbits depending on how rare and special they are. Players can also trade with other players for cheaper items that can also be traded outside of the gaming environment. Cards on the in-game platform can be used to award players special items and capabilities. These can also be melt down to claim the Enjin coins that are inside of them.
Age of Rust is involved in a singular multiverse with Age of Rust, 9Live Arena, CryptoFights, War of Crypto, Bitcoin Hodler and Forest Knight. This means that their worlds are connected to make it possible to trade items that are represented by ERC-1155 tokens, across their platforms. Overall, it's hoped that players will use these items to have a seamless experience with each and every game which includes being locked into the multiverse for all of their gaming needs.
The game also features 3 puzzle types, the first being adventure-progress puzzles such as moving a hidden lever to open a door; the second being crypto puzzles which are hidden puzzles that require skill and thought to unlocck in addition to crypto items in the players wallet. Third kind of puzzle is a crypto-treasure hunt where players can win up to 20 bitcoins by unraveling several puzzles, hints and clues.
CryptoAssault is a game in which players can buy units (with Ether) that are unique and tradeable ERC-721 tokens. These units are available for purchase alongside description of their capabilities, from the inventories they are sold for a limited time and when the first tournament is over, sales of the Genesis units will stop to sell and no more will be created.
The rarer units have better battle stats and larger territory radius. Players can then use these units to build armies to fight others. The battles take place in 3D world where players try to capture territories, mine resources and battle other units. A unit owns land around it but can expand as it captures territories from other units owned by other players. Each unit refuels for 3 hours after every move and has a maximum distance that it can travel at a time. Ground units need to avoid water, trees, mountains and other ground units while aerial units can fly over most obstacles.
Units are rewarded through capturing more territory around them and the reward is based on the amount of land they own at any given time.
Players can win more prizes in Ether if a satellite containing huge reward lands within their territory. To understand how this can happen, it's important to begin by understanding how a match can play out. Each of the units starts playing from the edge. All land is not equal but divided into rings and rings have more value as players approach towards the center. Satellites have also best chances of dropping at the land in the center ring. To access the inner rings, players need to increase their units' star-ratings. Fusing 3 units of the same type can also increase its star rating. Older units can also collect more land rewards.
All available resources are placed randomly on the land map. Units can be used to mine resources that unlock upgrades and crafting abilities. Players can also join alliances to coordinate attacks, defenses and bases.
Crypto Treasures is a mobile treasure hunt game in which players can complete various quests, trivia games and other mini games to unlock Gold ( the game's in-game currency), treasure chests, items, collectibles, and crypto coins including the featured Phoneum token PHM.

Findbitcoin.cash is a project with some sense of adventure in which users and supporters of Bitcoin Cash can both hide and search for BCH wallets hidden anywhere in the world. Think crypto geocaching. For whatever reasons they might want hide and find -- fun, advertising crypto or places etc. Findbitcoin.cash is a geocaching Findbitcoin.cash treasure hunt game among the many geocaching games, which trend has been so far popular.
Those wanting to hide Bitcoin Cash will need to generate a BCH wallet and then print a Bitcoin Cash-loaded paper wallet as well, and hide it in an obscure location. The website has own paper wallet generator which helps people to generate private and public key pairs when creating BCH paper wallets. The person hiding BCH will then provide the public key in the Findbitcoin.cash listings along with a hint about where the treasure can be found. It is recommended that the person geocaching the wallet prints out two copies of each wallet they are going to hide so that if anything happens to the hidden wallet, for instance being compromised by weather, or it taking too long to be recovered, then there can be a backup. The wallet hidden contains the private keys in QR code that the person who finds it can use it to possess and transfer the crypto. Users who chose to hide BCH must remember not to expose the QR code in photos.
In addition, users are advised to use a plastic ziplock bag to protect their paper wallets or, alternatively, laminate it.
Mythereum is an online MMO multiplayer, digital trading card game built on the Ethereum blockchain on which players can build unique decks of collectible cards, challenge others to engage in battle, claim unique territories and strategize with others to win free Ethereum.
Mythereum Cards used are each a unique Ethereum blockchain-based asset that can be traded, transferred, or sold either directly or on third-party marketplaces like OpenSea. Each pack of cards includes random cards from the latest edition of the game and as players play, they can gather Mythex, which is an ERC-20 token that can be redeemed for new cards or spent to upgrade to new ones. Cards come in editions, each with a maximum number of cards to ever be minted. The edition for which cards are sold out is no longer be available once all cards have been minted but players can obtain any cards from past editions from players who are willing to trade or sell them. Some of the editions that were previously released include: Genesis, Awakening and the Free-to-Play Survivor Edition, from which every account can claim up to 30 cards.
Players can combine cards to build decks from different editions and this acts as an initial battle strategy with a specific score depending on the resulting combination of the cards. These cards don't have to be bought to win or may be exclusive. The game is free to play and there will be periodic tournaments (both free-to-play tournaments and paid-entry tournaments) with real ETH prizes contributed by mythereum team and funded by ongoing card sale proceeds. The platform also features a marketplace where players can buy and trade game items. As of now, Mythereum's partners include Brave browser, Discord, OpenSea and Portis.
Satoshi’s Treasure is a game sponsored by Primitive Ventures and other prominent investors that's targeted towards colleges and universities around the world. During the game's main competition, which is already ongoing, students solve different puzzles and riddles to hunt for cryptographic keys hidden in different places around the internet and physical world (both online and offline in different physical places in printed and pasted formats or coded in the images of physical places). Throughout the process, players are required to collaborate with each other in teams in order to help each other unlock the price of $1 million worth of bitcoin.
The funds are hidden into 1,000 fragments requiring a minimum of 400 key fragments to move them. Then those fragments are hidden allover so collaboration is a must for any team to find the minimum fragments required to unlock the price. Students can use clues to solve the puzzles and find the private keys to unlock funds, can unravel clues the way they want, and even sell leads to others if they want.
The team behind the project plans on launching an app to help players track clues and updates. This app is will not be a required download for players, but it will be a conduit for sponsorship and partnership opportunities with external brands. Besides, they will also encourage the development of software by students, to help unravel the mysteries on the platform or store the found out puzzles and uncoded messages.
In addition to the $1 million reward, there will be smaller rewards associated with campus scavenger hunts and self-custody workshops starting in mid-September of this year. Even now, top cryptography foundations and teams are also contributing by building puzzles on their own.
Overall, this game also offers a unique opportunity for students in different parts of the world to learn about crypto and blockchain. According to Primitive Ventures co-founder Eric Meltzer, who is the game’s co-creator, many students who are interested in the blockchain world have chosen to participate in the game because their schools don't give them enough opportunities in their desired space yet. Therefore the team behind the project is looking to provide resources for these different student groups.
Satoshi’s Treasure co-founder Jessica Wang, told CoinDesk earlier this month that students are the future of the blockchain and crypto industry and they'll be including smaller prizes in the game to attract more students. She also reportedly said they would hide puzzles in physical locations, all around the world, adding that a lot of the game's current traffic was coming from United States and Canada, followed by Russia, France and Indonesia. Additionally, over time, the game's team will host custody-focused seminars in North America that will also act as another way to connect users from all over the world.
The team which is building Satoshi's Treasure has also announced a partnership with Tezos to create The Tezos Hunt, a multiplayer game of skill where people can solve difficult puzzles and technical problems for the benefit of Tezos and broader cryptocurrency community.
Participants in the Tezos Hunt would be rewarded in Tezos tokens or TEZ (XTZTez) from a prize pool of 1 million XTZ.
Built on top of dedicated smart contracts, it rewards its participants more immediately compared to the Satoshi's Treasure hunt game. According to the team's website, the many software written for Satoshi's Treasure for hunters to find and store keys and clues, will in the end benefit the Tezos ecosystem. According to the website, the team says they expect new tools to come up to enable participants to interact with the Hunt contracts, store and potentially even sell reward tokens, and parse through the plethora of new clues in the Tezos Hunt.
Individuals can play in the Tezos mini-hunt, which has a prize of 5000 XTZ, and which started on September 10, pending launch of mainnet Tezos Hunt when contract audit is finalized by the team.
The ST Prize's smart contract will enter pay-out mode once enough tokens to claim the entire 1M XTZ pot have been transferred to it. That's when hunters will be able to receive their XTZ prizes in exchange for the Prize Tokens they’ve accumulated. With this, it's important to remember that the hunt is expected to take 1 year or so to conclude. However, participants can sell their NFT tokens used on Tezos Hunt in the open market if they do not want to wait that long to get rewarded in XTZ at the end of the hunt.
